I wish I could give it 6 stars!!! I followed the recipe exactly except I added 1 tsp vanilla extract and substituted the 1/4 cup shortening with half stick butter (save the other half stick for the topping). I baked in a 13 x 9 inch pan and although it did not seem like enough batter, it rose beautifully (I admit I added one extra egg, so two eggs total). I did not change the quantity of any of ingredients. The only step I recommend changing is to sprinkle the blueberries on top and pat down rather than stir them in. This way, the blueberries stayed intact and the cake stayed white rather than being discolored from the berries. This is a GREAT cake base and I am sure, any fruit will work with this (ex, apples, peaches, other berries, etc)
